In honor of our friends over at Awesöme Orchestra, who planned a perfectly normal 69th session, I’ve decided to put together a roundup of the most sexually explicit works of classical music. Call it my own personal fantasy concert and a casual suggestion for when AO makes it to session 169. Obviously v LEWD and NSFW content beyond, CW: we shan’t be pretending sex doesn’t exist.Continue reading “Session 69, ClaXXXical MusiXXX”
I did a dumb thing today and started a comment fight on a Classic FM post because I just couldn’t handle their ludicrous claim that Olympia’s “Doll aria” aka “Les oiseaux dans les charmilles” from Offenbach’s Tales of Hoffman was “the most insane piece ever written for soprano“.
Oh we are so close to Halloween now my friends…
This is our second spookiest playlist because the last one (drops midnight of Halloween-eve) is basically nails on a chalkboard, so this is the last stop for discernable melody and joy. Like, evil mad scientist joy though.
We believe in treats not tricks so we’re rollin out playlists aaaaalll weekend. No more messing around, these are not cute THESE ARE SCARY!!! Fine…maybe a little cute but MOSTLY SCARY!!!
Happy Friday the 13th and almost halfway to Halloween! Friday the 13th is all about the milder superstitions like black cats and ladders and things that are unsettling but not like…ax-murdering ghost unsettling and that’s what this playlist is. Like any good fall-themed cocktail it starts off sweet, gets a little spicy and by the time you’re done with it you might feel a lil messed up.
It’s that time of the year again! Today is Mother’s Day, and I’d like to use this opportunity to reflect on the sheer number and variety of bad moms in opera. Or, to put it another way, 500 years of mommy issues!
